the fiscal cliff which could potentially raise taxes dramatically. that is big reason we see a lot of consumers aren't spending as much. a lot of companies are not hiring. you're not seeing unemployment fall. we don't know. this $63 again doesn't sound like a lot of money. i'm not going to be surprised next couple years if we see a lot more of these fees really sneaking up on us. i love the administration, say most likely will go away unless congress extends it. how much do we see it could end up being twice as much. martha: you can't see congress going, oh, my gosh, 2017, time to bring back the $63, it's done, not going to happen? thinking around the holiday thinking but know that will not happen. martha: anyone can find an example where congress said, you know what, we shouldn't have this money anymore, please tweet me @marthamaccallum. remind me. that will be inspiring moment. matt, thank you. you're busy this time of year. everybody is doing everything they can to avoid changes at the beginning of the year. good to see you. >> thanks. bill: time is running out. 2 1/2 weeks, fol

those caps. and that's one of the reasons that we're now in the fiscal cliff. >> baseline budgeting has been used by both parties since 1974. allows republicans to exaggerate claims of frugality. allows democrats to expand the growth of government. either way accounting trick that no family tried to balance its checkbook could ever get away with. bret? >> bret: british bank sbc has agreed to pay money to settle a money laundering case. the justice department in the u.s. says the bank cleaned funds for narcotics traffickers in mexico and allowed illegal transactions with iran, cuba, and other nations. michigan becomes a right-to-work state with some fireworks outside the state capitol. we'll talk about what's going on with the fox all-stars when we come back. begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, but crisp. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink, or a drink that's a food, woooooh!

this report is very important. it's going to be driving the conversation on the fiscal cliff. we only have 25 days until the tax hikes and spending cuts start to take effect. here is the thing. this number came in much better than expected, don. so the bad part about this is that it may not motivate all those politicians on capitol hill as much as it may have, if it came in much weak er. this may not light the fire, so to speak. that could be the downside to the upside surprise to the number. don? >> alison, stick around. we'll get back to you as well. >>> from wall street now to washington where the white house is keep iing a close eye on today's numbers. brianna keilar joins us now live. good morning, brianna. >> reporter: good morning to you, don. we're still awaiting reaction from the white house and also from congssional republicans. they've long said at the white house, take a look at the trend of these nuchls over the month. so this number, paired with the last couple of months on its face, they will say the trajectory looks good, obviously more needs to be done. maybe the president ca

the fiscal cliff today. so there are serious concerns on my side of the aisle that any agreement we reach will result in immediate tax hikes but promise spending -- promised spending cuts never occurred. we need more than just empty promises from the other side. the president and my colleagues on the other side of the aisle need to get serious about looking at the spending side. it's time for the president to make good on his campaign promise of supporting his words balanced approach to deficit reduction. let me repeat what i said at the beginning. all we have heard for three or four weeks now since the election is all about taxes. in fact, too often, that's what republicans are talking about, although they have got to be considered now as a result of the election. but if we give the president everything he wants in the sense of the -- taxing the wealthy, with the figures he wants, still runs the government only for eight days. what about the other 357 days? it only takes care of 7% of the deficit problems we face year after year after year and it's going to be year after year after year

right to the edge of the fiscal cliff. instead of reforming the tax code and cutting spending, the president wants to raise tax rates. but even if the president got the tax rate hike that he wanted, understand that we would continue to see trillion-dollar deficits for as far as the eye can see. listen. washington's got a spending problem, not a revenue problem. if the president doesn't agree with our proposal, i believe that he's got an obligation to families and small businesses to offer a plan of his own, a plan that can pass both chambers of the congress. we're ready and eager to talk to the pretty about such a plan. >> speaker, you did speak with the pretsident earlier this wee. can you talk about that call? also we understand that he's making clear that it's got to be increasing rates for the wealthy or no deal. are you willing to give a little bit, maybe not all the way to 39.6%? >> it was -- the phone call was pleasant, but it was just more of the same. the conversations that the staff had yesterday. just more of the same. it's time for the president, if he's serious, t

to go up. a lot of americans to not know a lot about the fiscal cliff. the confidence and a market reaction is very different than the spending cuts and tax increases. here is the fundamental point. i could be wrong, it happened once. why find out? it is irresponsible to govern the country this way. the sequester and across the board cut, it is bat policy. everybody knows it is bad policy. we are very close to doing it. i find the whole situation unsatisfying. host: our phone lines are open and you can also send us an e- mail. you work for a number of members of the democratic party. you work for the president. a question that comes up often is why there is a partisan divide. what has changed over the last 20 or 30 years? guest: we only have an hour so we cannot go through all of that. there are a lot of things. there are some extraordinary changes. politics as a con tact sport is a substantial change from when i worked on the hill. they did not agree on anything, but they enjoy each other's company. i have seen with my own eyes republicans and democrats refuse to get on the same e
